Advance your career by becoming an independent information security consultant

The Brainframe way

Cyber threats, including malware, phishing, and ransomware, are among the most severe threats to businesses today. For example, Google has found 100,000 malicious websites and 10,000 malicious files daily and has registered more than 2 million phishing sites, more than a  27% increase, in the past 12 months.

Small companies are often the targets of cyber threats because they are less likely to have strong security measures in place and don’t have a security team to protect themselves. As these threats grow, so does the demand for Information Security specialists, making this a very interesting career choice.

How To Become an Independent Information Security Consultant

The road to becoming an independent information security consultant often begins with an  obsessive interest in information technology and computer science as a whole. Most already have a degree or experience in IT and then build up their knowledge through the many resources available, but none of these are prerequisites if you are really determined.

The only thing you need to do is get started, and be curious. Here some guidelines on where to get started

This list might look daunting at first, but reality is that the more you discover, the more it will spark your interest and the more you will learn. If you want to become a successful Cyber security professional, you are signing up for a life long learning path, with every day being filled with mind boggling new discoveries of technologies and techniques you did not know before.
